The Host: (Any gender, any ethnicity) the master of ceremonies. A Shakespeare enthusiast whose good intentions are surely paving their road to hell. Friendly, honest and focused
The Scholar: (Any gender, any ethnicity) A Shakespeare snob intent on impressing the audience with his knowledge and importance. Hides a dark secret. Knowledge of current soap opera plots a plus.
The Fool: (Any gender, any ethnicity) The youngest member of the group and undoubtedly the dumbest. Attacks everything with great enthusiasm and a hint of ADHD tendencies. Experience with Shakespearian text a plus.
Swing 1: will learn the host and the scholar and be available for performance of either.
Swing 2: will learn the host and the fool and be available for performance of either.
